Liverpool fans may not have noticed a hilarious moment involving Mohamed Salah just 15 seconds before he scored the Reds’ opener against FC Midtjylland in just the 55th second of the match.
Liverpool won the ball back, with Divock Origi picking it up and sparking a counter-attacking opportunity, the Belgian did the obvious thing by passing it towards Salah’s path but…
The lightning-fast Egyptian was already in his full stride and perhaps expecting a ball in behind, he was shockingly too quick for the ball.
Salah made up for the blip just 15 seconds later as he used his electric pass combined with his relentless pressing to pounce on a poor back pass before scoring in a fortunate manner.
That strike was not only Liverpool’s fastest ever in the Champions League, but it also made Salah the Merseyside outfit’s top scorer in Europe’s elite competition, ahead of Anfield great Steven Gerrard.

What a frightening prospect Salah is on the break for any team in the world.
